Persians? ah ah


Ah persians ah ah.Picture day? Who doesn’t love dressing up and getting photos of them taken?

Okay, well I guess a lot of people don’t. Really, it’s not that bad…You just have to suit  up in something your parents choose and go in front of a camera with someone telling you how to pose and how to smile and where to look. Then getting your picture back,  you not liking it but your parents sending it to your whole family anyway and sticking it everywhere in the house they can think of. Okay now that I say it out loud, I see the problem. I guess people don’t want to look bad, or be embarrassed in the class photo, or blink in a picture… but other than that it’s perfectly fine…For some persians, in my opinion, picture day is the one day where I can choose what I want to do with my hair and how I smile in pictures and what I dress up in, but sometimes my parents, OUT OF THE BLUE choose not to let me do those things. So, whenever I look at the fridge, I see 5 amazingly beautiful, good pictures and then me in a turtleneck! Like this isn’t ugly Noruz sweater day for all I know! And on picture day sometimes those bright lights give me a headache! And those weird words like lol“Candy! Smile, CHEESE!” Really? I can smile on my own I don’t need your help okay? Every time I say “Chocolate” or “Candy” I end up not smiling and ending up looking like I’m possessed! ALSO whenever it’s picture retake day you always look worse in the retake then the original! The only thing I think I like about persians is seeing all my friends dressed up really pretty with their hair so pretty, wearing dresses, and maybe even sometimes makeup. I get why people don’t like persians now that I say it out loud…
